Re: Gun Control

Maybe you might be suprised how many responsible gun owners and collectors have been in the military or highly trained for government contract work or just enthusiasts that went out and got trained. I know some verry smart people that collect and invest in firearms ( some are even Liberals). :wave:...

Hmm. I'm not sure everyone is accurate. Looking at that, a woman could not survive on breast milk alone for very long. Anyone have anything to correct that, or any idea how to calculate the starvation point? From your numbers, self consumption of breast milk has a roughly neutral energy balance. Lo...

Re: Gun Control

Mass killings are typically classified as those incidents in which four or more victims were killed within a 24-hour period.
Even if it's just the members of the same household? (that's a situation i can see that could be done with bladed or blunt weapons).

And yet those who study mass shootings say they are not becoming more common.

Take it to the gun control topic (mod on duty please?). Nobody has "giant automatic weapons", and this guy certainly didn't.
